If you’re in archery, you’ve probably heard of The Vegas Shoot. It’s not only the biggest indoor tournament in the world – but it’s also the most accessible, with divisions to suit every kind of archery.
But The Vegas Shoot is not just about the competition. It’s become a unique showcase, a holiday and a badge of pride among everyone who shoots it.
Archers travel on their own, with friends, families or teammates from across the globe for three days of competition in 90 arrows – 30 a day – this, of course, not counting those extra arrows if you end up in any of the championships divisions shootdowns.
Still wondering why The Vegas Shoot is worth a try? Here are six reasons…
1. A celebration of sport
Each year, archers, vendors, fans and spectators from all around the globe travel to The Vegas Shoot to celebrate one thing they all have in common: archery. The atmosphere at the event is second-to-none with people from all walks of life united in a common passion.
The rules at this tournament are, perhaps, a little less strict than at other international events. It’s casual as well as competitive – fun for those who come for the enjoyment but still with the biggest prize funds and the best of the sport competing to win the dollars.
2. Trade show
The archery trade show in Vegas is the largest at any indoor tournament. Talk to the people behind the brands, learn from those who know the equipment best and check out the latest gear – and get even some event-only deals.
3. Prize money
The Vegas Shoot 2020 will have a record-breaking prize fund of over $490,000. It is distributed among all the divisions with scholarships awarded to youth and collegiate participants.
Our 2020 edition will be the first to include an additional $10K-A-Day Championship Shoot Off. It’s open to anybody who shoots clean on Friday or Saturday. (Extra purchase on registration required.)
The entire Vegas Shoot payout information is now available.
4. Practice with the pros
There’s nothing better than meeting your heroes – and at The Vegas Shoot that’s possible throughout the weekend. Not only you see them on the shooting line but around the South Point Hotel – or at Practice with the Pros, a free event open to archers aged 17 and under.
Kids get to ask their favourite pros for advice, tips and guidance, as well as collect autographs and photos.
5. All-day practice
Vegas never sleeps, and our show wouldn’t be famous if it didn’t live up to those expectations. Can’t sleep? Jetlag? Got blue, red and yellow on the mind? Head down at any time of night to the 24-hour practice range.
All those registered in the Championship divisions get access for free, others can purchase a pass during registration.
6. Indoor Archery World Series Final
The Vegas Shoot will act as the last leg of the 2020 Indoor Archery World Series and host the circuit finale on Saturday, 8 February in the main Championships arena. It’s a great show – and runs during Archers’ Appreciation night where food is free.
Come grab a bite and watch some of the best international archers compete.
